Oreo Owl Cupcakes 猫头鹰巧克力杯子蛋糕


I made this Oreo Owl Cupcakes for my son Birthday the other day. As usual, before I make the cake, I checked with him for what Birthday cake he wants first. Phew, this time he just wanted chocolate cupcakes, unlike last year he requested a Minecraft fondant cake. But I don't want to just make the ordinary chocolate cupcakes for him, so I chosen this cute Owl cupcakes that I have seen in Crystal blog.

At first, I use the normal size of Oreo cookies to make but after decorated, we feel they are too big size and not that cute. Luckily I have a box of mini Oreo cookies that given by Jessie when she visited me last year. I seem could not get mini Oreo cookies in supermarket here, if you know where to get this, let me know please..
These were the batch using normal Oreo cookies..
